How will that benefit when they will inevitably get 2% of the vote? Again, if you are further left than Biden, this should be an easy choice, because one candidate will  slowly walk towards that goal, while the other will run in the opposite direction, harming millions of people along the way and making it more and more difficult for meaningful change to occur in the future.

My views are on an opposite spectrum from left/right speak. Both red and blue run further towards authoritarianism. I am for government, but how can we call ourselves The land of the free while leading the world in prison population?

25% of the US believes Trump and Biden are not fit to be president. What would happen if we voted for the people we aligned with, instead of against the person we don’t align with? It is beneficial, it has to start somewhere. 

You clearly have a left leaning opinion on criminal justice reform. What about climate change? What about healthcare? What about immigration? These are all things that are affecting millions of people and can have a vastly different outcome depending on who has control of our government.

As for what would happen if that 25% of the US voted for "who they aligned with", Trump would win. That is what would happen 100%. I've spoken about this before, but modern Republicans have a very "this is our guy" mindset, where they are willing to forgive anything from their guy. Democrats on the other hand tend to almost be more critical of those on their side. If we fractured the voting pool we would crash and burn into fascism. That is why we have a primary. If progressive candidates aren't able to win the primary, what makes you think that they would win the general?
